Live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us,
Walk with us on your journey of Faith.
We offer many opportunities for you to explore your faith surrounded by a community of people on the same journey as you. We hope that you will join us to see all of the exciting things that are happening!
Memorial Day Float
Memorial Day is less than 5 months away! Why do we bring this up today? This year Trinity Lutheran is adding a float to the Camp Hill Memorial Day Parade, and we’re looking for ideas. On Sunday, January 7, anyone interested can obtain a set of rules and paper on which to submit your idea for our float, a plan that (1) will best meet the meaning of Memorial Day, and (2) can be readily made into an actual float. Later in the spring, the congregation will vote on which one our Trinity family will build. So, put on your thinking caps, and watch for further information!
Chili Cook Off – January 21
Chili, hot chocolate, candles, cozy slippers! Join us for our annual Chili Cook Off on Sunday, January 21, after the late services. Sign-ups are at the receptionist’s desk or online at www.timetosignup.com/trinitycamphill to make chili, cornbread, or just to let us know you’re attending (so we have enough hot dogs and dessert!) Questions? Talk to Kathy Holmes or Jennifer or Jonathan Heilman.
Calling All Adult Ministry Leaders
Have you lead a class, discussion or Bible study in the past year? Would you be interested in leading an adult discussion, class or small group? We Want to Hear From You! Join us for a brief but important meeting in the LIBRARY on Sunday, January 28, at 10 am. Contact Kelly Falck or Erich Sprowls for more information.
Spend a night at a Homeless Shelter
Becky Enney and Joe Hunter are looking for volunteers who would like to take an overnight turn hosting at the Homeless Shelter in Harrisburg during the week of Sunday, February 18 to Saturday 24.
Many Trinity members who serve as hosts have described the experience as rewarding, although some new volunteers might be “a bit nervous” as they consider serving those in need. Homeless people can seem to be quite different from us. We may think of them as dirty, lazy, scary and uneducated. Maybe they are, maybe they are not. However, as a People of God, our congregation is called to minister to each of them and to see the Christ in each of them, for when we help the least of us, we are helping Jesus!
Forfeiting a night of good sleep is a small price to pay for the good that is provided for these men. Please prayerfully consider volunteering. Two volunteers serve as hosts each evening. Christian Churches United has set rules for the guests to keep the night safe, both for the guests and volunteers. Watch for more information and the sign-up sheet in the Gathering Space in January. YOU are definitely needed!
